  • IceBezel12 · Bandbox always showed great talent, I remember his huge win at Chucktown when he was a 2yo. He just always hung in his most recent races after appearing to be loaded. Hope he continues to improve · 58 days ago ·
  • equineplay · A big thanks to the owners for hanging in there. You paid a lot of bills over the time he was off. Congrats to you. · 57 days ago ·
Javerre returns to Laurel Park Monday afternoon in search of a repeat performance in the $250,000 General George Handicap, which will feature nine battle-tested sprinters going seven furlongs. Last year, the Cal Lynch trainee was a driving winner of the Grade 3 sprint at odds of 6-1.Read More

  • ginam · I wasat that race. Based on the way the race developed he ran a good race. I the race was a little longer I think a win was a good probability. He placed well ahead ofthe rest of the pack. · 690 days ago ·
Kentucky Derby contender   workouts for today (Sunday, April 10)  (with HRN Derby rankings):   Today's Derby contender works included a six furlong move from impressive Rebel Stakes winner The Factor. He is expected to be a solid favorite for Saturday’s Arkansas Derby at Oaklawn...Read More
He’s never been an A-Lister. He wasn’t bred in Kentucky’s bluegrass, purchased for big money, or sent to one of our sport’s name trainers. He’s not even being pointed for this year’s Kentucky Derby, nonetheless Bandbox has become one of my favorite three-year-old colts in the nation. Yesterday at La...Read More

  • KyOaksRunner · I love Bandbox but I missed his race this weekend because of work. I would love to see him head to the Preakness. Tapit is absolutely on fire this year. · 1123 days ago ·
Heavy favorite Bandbox wore down a game Rush Now to win the $75,000 Private Terms Stakes at Laurel Park on Saturday. Rush Now was aggressively handled under Mario Pino and set sail after the lead soon after the start. He had four lengths on Bandbox after a 1/4 in :23.59. The lead was down to three a...Read More
Bandbox makes his second start of the year when he takes on seven rivals in Saturday's Private Terms Stakes at Laurel Park.  Trained by Rodney Jenkins, Bandbox began his career with three strong wins last year. The talented NY-bred could not match strides with To Honor And Serve and Mucho Macho...Read More
Kentucky Derby contender  workouts for today (Sunday, March 13)  (with HRN Derby rankings):   Today's Derby contender works included a four furlong breeze from Fountain of Youth hero Soldat. He goes next in the April 3 Florida Derby. J P’s Gusto drilled a strong five furlong bullet a...Read More
  • ajump08 · J P's Gusto should not be forgotten in the Rebel. Many will look at the likes of Astrology, Sway Away, Elite Alex, Alternation, and Archarcharch; and throw this one out saying he's simply not a two turn horse. J P is very versitile, and arguably could have been the best of the Southwest with his troubled trip. He's obviously thriving in Arkansas with his bullet work today in 59.40. · 1130 days ago ·
  • icyhotboo · ajump08 I just watched the replay of the Southwest.Thanks for bringing it to my attention as I didn't realize it was also his first start of the year.I would appreciate your analisis of that race if it's not to much trouble.thanks · 1130 days ago ·
It took only a week for the Derby picture to get muddled again, as To Honor and Serve’s disappointing effort left a log jam at the top of the list. Many more people are now sold on Soldat, and while he ran an excellent race and was never in any… Read More
  • icyhotboo · Steve with the wealth of knowledge you have I'm surprised you thought this was more that a prep for THAS.I must admit even for prep he looked like a second tier horse. · 1142 days ago ·
J J's Lucky Train got back to winning on Saturday, cutting back to seven furlongs to win the $51,500 Miracle Wood by a neck over the odds-on Bandbox at Laurel Park.After a pair of second-place finishes in two-turn races at Aqueduct, J J's Lucky Train made the trip to Baltimore for trainer William An...Read More
Kentucky Derby contender  workouts for today (Sunday, Feb. 20)  (with HRN Derby rankings):   Today's Derby contender works featured a five furlong breeze from Uncle Mo. His stablemate Stay Thirsty also went five furlongs at Palm Meadows but the bullet belonged to Holy Bull (G3) runne...Read More

Promising 2-year-old To Honor and Serve took another step forward Saturday, posting a gate-to-wire victory in the Grade 2, $200,000 Remsen at Aqueduct Racetrack.Read More
To Honor and Serve and Full Moon Blues, both victorious in juvenile graded stakes at Aqueduct Racetrack on November 6, will attempt to extend their winning streaks in Saturday’s Grade 2, $200,000 Remsen and Grade 2, $200,000 Demoiselle.   After breaking his maiden by 8 ¾ lengths in his second s...Read More
  • humphrey · Very good shot to win it but Buffum has never been really tested so that one is an unknown. 3, Mountain Town can press along with Bandbox which leaves then Mucho Macho Man to try to run down the heavy choice later. · 1238 days ago ·
1 1/8 miles could be within his range, but he probably won’t want to go much farther. Tapit has some Grade 2 winning colts, but his most talented offspring are fillies. Bandbox has no blacktype in the first two generations, but his third dam won a couple of stake races.
Planning on following this MD colt to Louisiana.
Heavily favored Friend Or Foe returned to the winner’s circle Saturday afternoon with a front-running, stakes-record victory in the 35th running of the $200,000 Empire Classic for New York-breds, the centerpiece of New York Showcase Day at Belmont Park.   Trained by John Kimmel for Chester and...Read More
